With TV at its absolute peak-iest, the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards get underway Sunday night, with strong contenders spanning network, cable and online content up for nominations. On Saturday "Stars on Set: Emmys Story" will feature snaps from nominees and the sets of nominated shows like Veep and This Is Us. She is attending the Emmy awards despite her series Quantico not being nominated for any category. The much anticipated Emmys have yet again zeroed in Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles as the venue and will be hosted by TV personality Stephen Colbert.
With drama category favorite Game of Thrones ineligible this year due to its summer start date, the race is wide open. Stalwarts like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones aren't in the running this year - the former ended before last year's awards, and the latter didn't air its season within the eligibility window.
Emmy host Stephen Colbert is nominated in this category, along with Samantha Bee, Bill Maher, and Jimmy Kimmel, but all eyes will be on these two Brits fighting to make late-night TV their own.
According to the latest reports, Chopra will be attending the Emmy award 2017 as a presenter.
Netflix leads among the all-digital players with 91 total Emmy nominations (for popular shows like The Crown and Stranger Things). The pre-show will also stream live on EW, People, Essence, InStyle, and Time's websites. Just a year ago, the cast and crew won 12 different Emmys alone.
